7:02am
why they say the president's advisors had to stage an intervention in last year's campaign and why there were pitfalls that led to mitt romney and a running mate with chris christie as a running mate. they're the one that wrote game change. we'll hear from them in their first interview. >> let's get right to today's top stories. new information about the shooter in the deadly attack at los angeles airport. miguel almaguer is at l.a.x. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. this is where it all happened inside terminal three. police say the suspect walked through the front door with a rifle and five magazine clips and opened fire. 23-year-old paul ciancia walked inside the terminal with this assault rifle, plenty of ammo, a plan to kill and a note for police. >> in that note, he indicated
7:03am
his anger and his malice, i would say, toward the tsa officers. >> reporter: according to a federal criminal complaint, ciancia fired multiple rounds at point blank range at officer gerardo hernandez. investigators said ciancia proceeded up an escalator, but when hernandez appeared to move, he returned to shoot him again. police say he shoots tony grigsby and brian ludmer. once he was past security, police say he made his way down the long corridor. according to some reports, he went up to witnesses and said tsa. they shook their heads no and he kept going. ciancia was seen shooting several times.
7:04am
we now know ciancia lived in los angeles for over a year. law enforcement sources tell nbc news he legally purchased two gun from a target range not far from his home. in a moment, ciancia lashes out at the tsa saying his constitutional rights were violated and a mention of nwo which warns of a totalitarian one-world government. he sent a message to his family back in new jersey just before the rampage. his father was so worried, he asked to call l.a. authorities. >> he called my cell phone back. he said to me that i can't believe what i'm saying on tv. is this true? is this my son involved in the shooting? my reply to him was i heard the same thing, paul. i have not confirmed anything. >> reporter: that confirmation
7:05am
would come later for the family of tsa agent hernandez. >> i am truly devastated. we are all heart broken and we will miss him dearly. >> reporter: this morning, ciancia is in critical condition. he has been unable to respond to investigators because of his medical condition. police say the 23-year-old sent his brother and sister a text message saying he was going to commit suicide shortly before the shooting. he could face the death penalty. matt. >> miguel almaguer in los angeles. miguel, thank you. a match up in the 2016 presidential election. two possible contenders. chris christie and hillary clinton are getting more attention. kelly o'donnell has more. >> reporter: this spot is the nutley diner. it is one of several spots christ see will make today.
7:06am
he says that the bigger the win tomorrow the better for his future possibilities. never bashful. governor chris christie thinks new jersey can send a message. >> we need to show the republican party and america that we can win again and guess where they will be watching on tuesday night to see if we win? right here in new jersey. they will be watching us. >> reporter: cruising toward re-election on a week-long bus tour, the destination may ultimately be the 2016 presidential race. voters bring it up at every stop. christie both relishes the speculation and tries to tamp it down. >> i will see what the future will be. i think people don't plan politics years ahead. >> reporter: but 2016 predictions are irresistible.
7:07am
even more mitt romney on "meet the press." >> that is the kind of popularity and the track record the republican party needs if we take back the white house. >> reporter: the current occupant, president obama, jumped into one race this cycle. campaigning to help terry mcauliffe. the democrat's next presidential contend e contender? hillary clinton was not in iowa. she got attention when senator chuck schumer made this call. >> 2016 is hillary's time. run, hillary! run. if you run, you'll win and we'll all win. >> reporter: and president obama did not campaign for the democrat running against chris christie. she wanted more democrats to help her out. savannah, people are looking beyond tomorrow to the irresistible 2016.
7:08am
back to you. >> kelly o'donnell, thank you. we have the new book "double down" which is causing controversy. we have mark halperin and john heilemann with us both. you guys reveal he had another terrible performance behind the scenes so badly that his advisers thought we might lose this election. >> he did 48 hours before the debate at hofstra. his disdain for romney. he could not figure out how to deal with that. at the same time, the contempt for the theater of politics. it got mixed up together. it was the horrible performance that left him stymied about how they fix it before the debate which was crucial for the re-election.
7:09am
>> they staged an intervention, mark. at one point, the president said i don't know if i can do this. >> one of the most dramatic moments for "double down." weeks before the presidential election and two days before a debate, his aides say we have to go to him and tell him things have to change. they ended up having a conversation which was emotional and they changed his debate prep. they said he had to be fast. he had to not be slow in the first debate. talk fast and one liners. not the thoughtful disposition that barack obama, the former law professor wants. >> somebody told you you will never get this story. what did you say? >> they said this thing happened at the debate prep before hofstra. it is a black box you will never get inside that box. >> that encourages people like you. let's move on to christie. the vetting team that looked at the v.p. candidate saw so many
7:10am
land mines which was a non starter. >> governor christie's run for office. there is nothing like the scrutiny you get if you are thinking about the ticket. romney was terrified. he picked someone and it blew up. he wanted no controversy. they found a lot of it. that was the reason that governor romney said as much as i need a street fighter, too much risk. >> these guys talked to low level staffers. you are just trying to sell books, john. >> we talked to high level staffers and everybody involved. we had an extraordinary thing. we quote from the vetting report. line-by-line what romney's vetters had to say about chris christie. >> that suggests somebody in romney's world they don't mind. we heard romney giving an "a" plus record card to christie.
7:11am
>> they can have complex relationships. romney and christie have a great relationship. personally they do. it is also true that their aides do have a bit of tension. >> a couple of quick things. you reported that the president's advisers actually considered and poll tested switching hillary clinton for joe biden and making her the v.p. candidate. is this something that president obama knew about? >> we have no idea. what we do know is the very top level of the obama campaign, no the political standing in the poll was so bad, they felt it was a dereliction of duty not to study it. >> one of the most unforgettable moments was clint eastwood and that chair. who's idea was it and how did the advisers react? >> this is something we love to do. at the time, how did clint east
7:12am
wood get on the stage? mitt romney had dinner it eastwood last year. he decided he wanted him at the convention. eastwood decides at the last minute, everybody is up giving speeches and saying how great romney is. he comes up with a great thing where he talks to the chair. no one in mitt romney's world was happy with it. one was back stage and left governor romney's presence to throw up he was so upset. it was a big night for mitt romney. >> a lot of scoop in the book. it is called "double down." mark and john, thank you. we will send it to natalie following a remarkable story. good morning, everyone. a dramatic rescue on sunday night after a college student was found trapped in a narrow two-foot space between buildings. we have rehema ellis with more on what happened.

7:14am
it is unclear how he became stuck or how long he was trapped. >> the extent of the injuries are unknown. he is conscious and alive and transported to the nearest hospital. >> reporter: the student is listed in critical, but stable condition and he is talking. officials hope he will soon be able to reveal how this ordeal happened. natalie. >> very lucky young man. rehema ellis, thank you so much. houston texans gary kubiak is recovering after collapsing at sunday's game. he was walking back to the locker room and fell to his knees. he was responsive before taken off the field to the hospital. the general manager said he was lightheaded and dizzy. this comes a day after the denver broncos coach john fox will miss games for a heart procedure. caught on camera. a fire ball in a lighting storm over the weekend in canada.

7:42am
for me to come out and say there's things wrong within the system there's people skeptical and they're concerned about that. >> you have been hearing that over the weekend, haven't you? >> the response has been crazy. major, major response. >> let's listen to some of the things people are saying on twitter. respect for bernie kerik speaking against mandatory minimu minimums. you were raising the issue of our time. but there were other opinions. this one came from samantha zylks. kerik, really? a victim of the system. they're victims of their own personal choices. #consequences. how do you feel about that? >> i don't consider myself a victim of the system. i think the system is flawed. it's not -- it's not about me being a victim of the system. i think the system is flawed. i think we -- the system is supposed to punish.
7:43am
it's not supposed to ruin personally, professional, financially. it's not supposed to detroy families and the punishment must fit the crime. i was in prison with commercial fishermen that caught too many fish that spent three years in prison and they're not going to be able to work in that industry for the rest of their lives. that's a life sentence. it's not about me being a victim. it's about a system that's broken. >> the very thing that makes you perfectly qualified to talk about this, the fact that you've got this resume in law enforcement. you were nominated to run the department of homeland security and then three years in federal prison, the very thing that gives you this perspective, don't you think it might be what says he lost his right to speak
7:44am

beard and then one by one, the teammates joined in. almost everyone soon embraced blood, sweat and beards. the beard bonding seemed to help out on the field, and the red sox won 12 of the first 16 games. that growing sense of team was further solidified in the aftermath of the boston marathon bombing which killed three a mile from fenway park. david ortiz best summed up the city's wounded, but fighting spirit. >> this is our [ bleep ]ing city. and nobody going to take it from us. >> reporter: as the season continued the razors were put a waway and the beards and the winning streaks grew and grew and grew. a bonding of men in pursuit of a common goal, a little scruffy, and now world series champions. now, we are joined by the world

8:20am
the things that the start of spring training, we all bought in. we were going to be as i called it a brotherhood, and go out there every single night and play as one team. the tragedies that we faced as a city, and the resilience showing as a city and brought up closer as a city to be brought up as one team, and storybook ending to what happened. you know, it has been amazing, and you know, hey, we are are the world series champions. i look like i'm about 12 right now. >> yeah, you do look different. and it is nice to get some of that off, so the question is shane, and david, this worked so well this year, you get to spring training next year, are you growing them again? >> i will. >> you are? >> i am going to start in the off season so i won't look like, i don't know what my beard is going to be called honestly by the end. >> and everybody has to figure it out from the beginning. >> hey, you guys look good and enjoy the cleanup, an congratulations again on the world championship. i'm a born and raised yankee fan, but i liked what you guys

8:25am
cousins, you'd think that it is confusing, but not for faylan. >> he looked at me one day and he said, i have two mothers. i was like, yeah, yeah, you do. he sort of thought about it, and then he went, you know, i love you both. >> oh. and what is amazing is that faylan and tallulah are biological cousins, but as far as they are concerned, they are brother and sister. >> obviously, this situation works very well, but does it get confusing and situations where it is not as smooth? >> well, they have worked through it. it is really amazing in talking with everyone that they cannot imagine doing it any other way. >> that is amazing and a new definition of family. and tomorrow in the series what you need to consider before adopting and then thursday, it is going to be special, because we will be joined by a dozen families as they finalize their

8:46am
>> pacifier. >> chupie is which? >> it's from pacifier in spanish. >> okay, binkie is the name for the pacifier? >> exactly. you forgot the binkie. >> now bankie is something different. a lot of kids have blankets and those are bankie. so we're concentrating on chupe's and binkies. parent versus new children and they give them the pacifier to calm them down but then they can only be calmed down with the pacifier. >> not just that. when you go for the second year to the pediatrician for them to check the kid, they tell you that the pacifier is also linked to some kind of speech problems in the future or certain studies they say that they have kind of -- its a link between the ear infection and all of these

because of the pacifier. >> so clearly there's a cutoff age. you have a daughter who is 6 and a son who is 2. so the age of 2 is the cutoff? >> the age of 2 is the cutoff. that's what my experience is. but it was funny because i was -- it was my first daughter, sabrina and i didn't want to see her cry. it was drama. >> and every time you take the pacifier away she would get hysterical. >> terrible. it was a bad experience for me. i start adding two pacifiers in the crib. so every 40 minutes you would have to go to the crib and put the pacifier in. so i ended up with 20 pacifiers in the crib. >> it's not a good thing. at two years old it's tough to communicate. how did you start to explain that we needed to wean off the pa pacifier. >> it was devine intervention and the desperate call of a mother at 3:00 a.m. i was in the crib and the baby
8:48am
was crying and couldn't find the pacy and i said do you know why pacy is sad? because pacy misses his mommy. pacifier wants to go home. >> and she was like bin kirkski? >> yes, she lives in a castle. >> your brilliant. a little evil but brilliant. >> you and me apart would be terrible. >> and she bought this. >> she said to me, take binkie to binkie land. it was amazing. >> well done. >> and then i created the five steps that are in the book. >> which became this -- by the way, the illustrations in the book are wonderful and i know that's a hard thing for a first time author of a children's book to come up with the right illustrat illustrator. how did you do that? >> i'm very creative and it's like my hobby is paint and i did all of these illustrations so it
8:49am
took me two years to find the right illustrator that would capture my essence and respect the castle, the lollipops, everything. i got that person and we created this magic kingdom and then the most important are the steps to help your kid getting rid of the pacy. what i think is its the first appearance of getting -- letting go. you know, for a human being it's very difficult to let go so for a baby it's terrible. so it's the first experience to let go and it's okay. >> great advice for parents. are you going to do more. >> yes. this is my fourth. this is the first child book and i'm very excited. >> congratulations. >> thank you so much. >> nice to have you here. the book is called chupie and we are recommending this for anyone going through this right now at home. we're back in a moment. this is "today" on nbc.

he said victoza® is different than pills. victoza® is proven to lower blood sugar and a1c. it's taken once-a-day, any time, and comes in a pen. and the needle is thin. victoza® is not for weight loss, but it may help you lose some weight. victoza® is an injectable prescription medicine that may improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes when used with diet and exercise. it is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and should not be used in people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. victoza® has not been studied with mealtime insulin. victoza® is not insulin. do not take victoza® if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza® or any of its ingredients. symptoms of a serious allergic reaction may include: swelling of face, lips, tongue, or throat, fainting or dizziness, very rapid heartbeat, problems breathing or swallowing, severe rash or itching.
9:48am
tell your doctor if you get a lump or swelling in your neck. serious side effects may happen in people who take victoza®, including inflammation of the pancreas (pancreatitis), which may be fatal. stop taking victoza® and call your doctor right away if you have signs of pancreatitis, such as severe pain that will not go away in your abdomen or from your abdomen to your back, with or without vomiting. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take and if you have any medical conditions. taking victoza® with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. the most common side effects are nausea, diarrhea, and headache. some side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. if your pill isn't giving you the control you need ask your doctor about non-insulin victoza®. it's covered by most health plans. okay. so you're looking for a new idea for a weeknight dinner this week. you need something fast and easy. have you thought about scallops? >> the executive chef from the
